Why don't you start by looking at ardour?  Seeing as that it already 
_is_ a multitrack audio recording studio (gtkmm, JACK, ALSA) and work 
from there?  Or if you're stuck on KDE/Qt look at MuSE or Rosgarden 
which both support audio too (ALSA/JACK) and could easily be extended?  

One thing I think we've learnt from artsd and the subsequent decision to 
split the functionality of it (at some point) into that supporting 
"multimedia apps" and that supporting "sequencer apps" is that fitness 
for purpose has got to be a major part of your decision making process.

Just my 2c.
